Busy Monday....

As usual, Monday is busy, but I had to stop and show you that the rug is going to fit. 

And the table is going to get painted, once again.  It keeps looking worse and worse.Or maybe we just need a different table...

One more curtain panel to go...

As for the rug, I am almost a quarter of the way around the outside now... I think that I am about half done...That's if you want to be realistic about it...

Each of the stripes have 10 stitches....It repeats every five rows...50 stitches a repeat...

I resisted up until I realized those numbers above...I counted....

Are you ready for this?  Stupid rug will have 10,275 stitches in all!  Right now, I have other things to do....Real life jumps out at me once in a while....I have to get back to work...

See you tomorrow.

The rug is not only going to fit, it is going to look great! All 10,275 stitches of it. :D

And I thought crocheting was hard??!

I like the table base, but is the top a bit big for the space? If I were messing around with it, I'd put on a coat of black/brown wash over it, heavier in places, and then sand it back to the coral color to show wear spots -- sort of shabby chic it. Then with a nicely embroidered silk shawl as a table cover, Junior would be in business! :)

Kathie, it was black before and didn't read well at all. I have several ideas floating around in my head, inclining a couple that eliminate the table altogether. I'm getting there, sway but surely....

I love the mix of colors, very bohemian gypsy. The gold surround has an ancient Egyptian flare as well (I know don't give Tessie ideas about Cleopatra!). What a great work of art!
Best, Neen

I wouldn't mind having that rug in full size! It's beautiful. I love all the colours. For some reason I tend to like any colour a little brighter in mini work. My first instinct would say colours should be more muted in such tiny spaces but, in reality, I find they don't show up as well if they're not nice and bright. I love your colour sense and how instinctive your matches seem to be. - Marilyn
